I was wondering if anyone can help me?

I’m looking at buying a new slow cooker and this 3.8l (about 4 quart) model caught my eye… it seems to have a rack inside for small dishes… does that mean I could put a smaller container inside for smaller quantities?

This certainly makes one think so: "Versatile and multi-functional - cooking rack for dessert, ramekins or pans"

I saw this "Their helpline number, 0870 240 6902, is there to help you with any concerns or queries " ...perhaps they could answer your question, or give you another number to call.

That looks like a very nice one. I love my slow cookers.

Thanks, Nony... I'm no slow cooker expert, so was hoping someone else interpreted it as I did! I'm planning on giving them a call tomorrow... it's after 'closing time' here!

OK so this is a year later but;
You might use it for ribs to keep them off of the greasy bottom, or a whole chicken or anything that you might want to distill in steam like vegis.
A 4 qt. is not big enough for me. I went with the 6 qt. as I like to freeze leftovers.

Thanks for the tip! I'll try it! Very Happy

Slowcooker and I have been getting on very well this year... and it's plenty big enough for 3 of us and we have leftovers!

I am happy to hear that. Smile I have been using mine quite a bit in this nippy weather, too. Wink

I use mine year round. Love it in the winter for family dinners on Sunday and there are upwards of 9 people, but I also use it a lot in the summer so I don't have to fuss in the hot kitchen as much. Cool

I use mine often, more than the oven really.

Since I've been married I ahve been through two of them. I use my slow cooker a lot. I am on number three now. I do chilli, pea soup, corned beef, beef brisket, mixed vegetables, beef n barley soup and there is a low-salt paprika, chicken n onion dinner I do that was my Mom's recipe, it's sooo good.
